Training and Resources

The Iowa Mayors Association has gathered resources for mayors to use throughout their term. The League has helped designed mayor specific training throughout the year.


The League offers various trainings that are beneficial to elected officials.


The association has compiled some resources that may be helpful during your tenure as mayor. These are just samples and may be used for initial guidance, if your city needs a policy, please work with your city staff and city attorney.


Learn about the Certified Elected Municipal Official certification. Fifty credits are needed to obtain the CEMO designation. This includes a mix of required core and elective credits.
